Lewis gives winnings to Houston

Stacy Lewis

KPMG, one of her sponsors, announced it was going to match Lewis' winnings in the relief effort.

"It was probably one of the easiest rounds of the year, to be honest", Lewis said.

As the tournament's two-time defending champion, and being at the top of the leaderboard, Henderson said she wants to keep everything the same with her game. Trying to win was the last thing I was thinking about - I was thinking about that check. "To do it when I added pressure to myself is a pretty good, pretty cool deal".

Lewis, who did well to avoid dropping shots on both the final two holes, admitted the final day was "much harder" than she had anticipated before clinching her first LPGA Tour title since 2014.

The LPGA Tour visits Columbia Edgewater Country Club for the Cambia Portland Classic.

"Just kind of handed over control and said, 'Take me".

"I finished without being able to find my rhythm".

Henderson, who played last week in front of the home crowd at the CP Women's Open in Ottawa, Canada, didn't show any signs of fatigue. "Hopefully, I can go out and make the next few days special, too".

New export business also rose, however at the slowest pace in the current three-month period of growth. However, the rate of increase remained well below the record high seen at the start of the year.

A number of PGA Tour players have pledged money to the Houston flood victims as well.

She had a bogey on her closing hole which cost her a share of third but laughed it off, saying "it's such a typical ending for me". The winning check was $195,000, so $390,000 was donated.

"I kind of resigned to the fact that whatever was going to happen was going to happen", Lewis said. I was hitting a lot of good shots, a lot of good putts, and they just weren't going in. Lewis successfully hit the green from the bunker, and Chun attempted a tricky chip shot to land a birdie and force a playoff.

She is one shot ahead of a trio of players - Mexico's Gaby Lopez (64), Dane Nicole Broch Larsen (67) and South Korean Chella Choi (68). She broke through in Portland after finishing second twice - 2 strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and 4 shots behind Brooke Henderson a year ago.

"I made another bogey-free round so I think it was a great round today", Chun was quoted as saying on the LPGA website. The cut was 1-under par.

Things didn't get much better for the remainder of the day, as the 19-year-old (she turns 20 on September 10) from Smiths Falls birdied the par-3 eighth and 13th holes, but gave those strokes back with a double bogey on the par-4 ninth.

"I'm just really excited".

After Chun's chip settled six feet from the hole, Lewis had two putts to win. "Stacy played well, too".
